I want to study up and take the FE this fall. I have been out of school 3 years and live in Wilmington (so the FE prep class is not an option); is there any good training packs out there for studying up and learning the material needed to pass?

I am sure I could google for the answer but figured a TWW endorsement would hold more weight than an online review. Most of the guys who have taken it at my company did so 10+ years ago.

just watch the videos from the review class and learn where things are located in the equation guide they give you

http://ppi2pass.com I used the practice problems on this website. I also had the Lindeburg review book and it was helpful. Studying for the FE is all about learning where stuff is in the equation guide, and how to solve problems backwards. It's an exercise in whether you can pass a standardized test, not your engineering skills.

i think the big thing is to do as many practice tests, i know that my mind isn't as good in test mode now being out of school. if you can practice your standardized test-taking skills i think it will help you a lot. the actual content of the test isn't really that difficult, its just that sometimes you have to figure out what exactly the problem is looking for you to do.

I agree, passing the FE is just a matter of if you can use the equation reference material. I took the FE prep course and that's what was stressed...of course we would do sample problems from multiple engineering disciplines, but it just came down to identifying the discipline and going to that area of the book

The general Lindeburg book taught me a lot about subjects that weren't covered in my discipline (bio, civil, econ, etc), gave me a good idea of what equations to look for in the reference, and provided a lot of practice questions. If the discipline specific PPI books are along the same caliber as Lindeburg, you could probably pass any exam by working through it.

I have one of those giant review books for the morning session. You interested?
